    Sheryl is Hard Rock's Artist Of The Month

    "Listening to Be Myself, it occurred to me that Sheryl Crow is woefully underappreciated as an Americana artist. In many ways, she’s the preeminent exponent of the organic sound that is so celebrated when performed by groups like Wilco or Mumford & Sons, but you’ll rarely hear her named mentioned when bearded nerds wax philosophical about what geniuses the Avett Brothers and Lucinda Williams are. That just ain’t right. When she hit the mainstream in 1993 with Tuesday Night Music Club, the music industry didn’t have any appetite for a rootsy-sounding woman. This was the heyday of the processed pop tart and the Riot Grrl. It was either one or the other back then. Sheryl was neither – she made her career happen on the strength of her material. She’s a bona-fide pioneer of the modern Americana movement and deserves some damn credit for it.

    That’s why we’ve made Sheryl Crow Hard Rock’s Artist of the Month for May 2017. We’ll be bumping her new stuff and plenty of her classic material every 90 minutes at every single Hard Rock Cafe worldwide all month long." -  Jeff Nolan, Hard Rock
